The fuel cell Boom: industry 2020 as the best performers

hydrogen is considered, in principle, for thousands of years, our number One energy source. The isotopes of the element to hold the sun Burning, and without the sun would be on our planet, well, absolutely nothing.

As an energy source, but water is lagging behind the fabric of the competition. Fossil fuel practically had consistently ahead of the game. Sad glory reaped the hydrogen, at best, for its potential in nuclear fusion bombs.

But the Megatrend of hydrogen returns currently to its short heyday in the 1990s. In addition to the electro-mobility fuel cell is suddenly back as a viable Alternative to the internal combustion engine.

share prices explode

The Renaissance of hydrogen is shown mainly in the courses.

Also, the Charging infrastructure is more compact than in the case of battery-powered forklifts – more space for their inventory, so.

Also in the passenger transport, the Trend towards fuel cell goes. In China, increasingly fuel-cell buses will be used. In the Tech metropolis of Shenzhen, the first Bus for this year lines planned – although the urban transport system was already 100 percent electric. And with Toyota's Mirai, for the first time a fuel cell Car is actually built in series. The group is expecting a sales of 30,000 vehicles per year.
